Italian comics writer/illustrator/creator Mirka Andolfo (Unnatural, Unsacred, DC Bombshells) will release her new gothic horror comic miniseries, Mercy, for the US this March 2020, from Image Comics.
Andolfo presents a darker story that addresses issues far beyond typical genre-related tropes. Mercy explores topics of “otherness,” damnation, redemption, and what it means to be a monster.
Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy begins when the placid mining village of Woodsburgh is disturbed by a series of brutal murders, sending the settlement into turmoil. As the first snow covers the chaos in a white blanket, a mysterious woman in black arrives, eliciting a totally different kind of unrest. But who is Lady Hellaine, really? And what’s her secret agenda?
Image Comics recently released a preview from the forthcoming six-issue miniseries. (3-page preview below!) Mercy was also recently released in Italy by Panini Comics with an established fanbase and bestselling track record.
“I’m so thrilled about the release of Mercy by Image,” said Andolfo in a recent press release from Image Comics. “As with every story I write and draw, there’s a lot of me inside this book, and I hope the American readers will enjoy that, as they did with Unnatural!”

Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy will release with multiple covers to its first issue with art Mirka Andolfo, Humberto Ramos, Artgerm, Enrico Marini, Marco B. Bucci. This full first issue will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 4.
